Here in the Redefining Wealth community, we have what I like to call the six pillars of wealth. Each pillar is designed to help us achieve our definition of wealth, which is overall well-being, as we continue to chase purpose. Right now, you have caught us in the middle of our Faith Pillar series entitled “Faith Works”.
In this 3-part series, I’m tapping into connecting with guests and resources that can help us strengthen our faith. One of the greatest resources is prayer and on last week’s episode of the podcast, I shared my prayer for you in alignment with our six pillars of wealth. This week, I bring you a guest who knows a thing or two about having “Conversations With God”.
Chrystal Evans Hurst is a speaker, worship leader, and author of her bestselling book:The 28-Day Prayer Journey: A Daily Guide To Conversations With God.
In this episode, Chrystal and I dive into the power of having a relationship with God, the need for gratitude, and the importance of repentance. She also shares what she believes is the most unused tool for evangelism – Prayer.
She says, “You don’t have to find time, you make time to have conversations with God.”
This episode is brought to you by Command the Stage, an Intimate Training Created for the Next Generation of Transformational Speakers Who Desire to Confidently Communicate the Message they’ve Been Called to Share with the Masses.
